Frank Loyd Wright Gas Station


I was just checking out some of the upcoming events that are going on at the Carlton County Historical Society of which I am a very loy key, if not negligent member of the board. Anyway, one of the coolest events of the season is coming up in June and it is a party at the currenlty being renovated Frank Loyd Wright gas station a really awesome piece of architecture and history in our small town. I cant help but look at this picture and think about what gas meant to people then, and what it means to people today. Obviously at one point in our history buying gas was an elegant ordeal, we have long taken that for granted but I see a day coming where we understand its value once again.........that day might be tomorrow!
